Lace Eight: French Knot

Wall-mounted Sculpture

Stainless Steel - Bobbin Lace

15"H x 21"W x 5 1/2"D


I made 3 similar forms in 3 different sizes to see if one or a combination would solve a design challenge that developed during the making of Lace Six: Serenity, the wall sculpture I was creating for a residential commission.  Having three more-or-less identical forms in three sizes enabled me to test the possibilities on the wall, and make them “real” for my client.   I used the middle size for the wall sculpture; the largest form became Lace Eight.  With much longer loose wires, I could add more curls to the large form, ultimately suggesting an embroiderer’s French Knot.
